In this solar flare reconstruction worksheet, students read about the 'saturation' point of satellite detectors when solar flares are at their most intense phase of brightness. Students are given x-ray flare data and they re-plot the data to estimate the peak of intensity. They create 2 exponential functions to fit the data and estimate the peak intensity and time. Students use calculus to integrate one of the functions and calculate the total energy radiated by the flare.
Students practice sample questions from the AP Calculus Exam. In this practicing sample questions from the AP Calculus Exam lesson plan, students solve calculus problems involving bounded regions, integration, derivatives, and limits. Students answer free response and multiple choice questions on the above mentioned topics.
Looking for an interractive presentation for your high schoolers dealing with calculus? Then this PowerPoint is for you! Problems that cover area, volume, and other calculus-related topics are presented. Students are led through the steps necessary to solve the problems, and are given instant feedback.
Students use the derivative and integral to solve problems involving areas. In this calculus lesson, students calculate the area under a curve as they follow a robot off road making different curves along the drive. They use Riemann Sums and Trapezoidal rules to solve the problem.
